Business results and enterprise performance depends on various factors. First of all, there are primarily human resources and their knowledge, skills and competencies. Managerial decisions supported by progressive technology are other important factor. These decisions are often done based on reports and analyses with help of enterprise information systems.

The proper complementation of new technology and management system can be achieved a significant impact on key performance indicators and results of enterprises and projects. Implementation of new technology such as enterprise information system should be an asset for the enterprise. Cost and profit are one of the elementary key performance indicators. Measurement of its impact on business results are very important for construction project management. There is assumption, that exploitation of enterprise information system has effects on cost and profit in construction project management. Research discusses issue of enterprise information system impact on key performance indicators in construction project management. Research sample included results of construction projects in Slovak construction industry. Main objective of research was set as confirmation of hypotheses, that enterprise information system has impact on selected key performance indicators like cost and profit.
